Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy
Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy
Cognitive behavioural therapy is a psychological approach that is derived from models evaluated within the academic discipline of behavioural and cognitive psychology. Research has shown CBT to be affective for a wide range of problems. It employs techniques that are focused on changing errors or biases in the way you think, ‘Cognitive' and what you do, 'Behaviour'.
The client and therapist work together to identify and understand problems in terms of the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviour. It focuses on the 'here and now' problems and difficulties rather than the possible origins from the past and looks at ways of improving your state of mind now.
CBT can help with:
Anxiety and panic attacks
Post traumatic stress
Sexual or relationship problems
You may have experienced a loss of self-confidence with decision making becoming more difficult, with a lack of emotion and connection. Resilience is not about building walls against difficulties it’s about recognising your strengths reframing and regaining clarity in thoughts, behaviours and emotions. This clarity is diminished when we are experiencing excessive pressures resulting in stress. I will help you to strengthen your resilience by; recognizing the sources of these excessive pressures that may be workplace or personal in origin; understanding, strengthening, sustaining and supporting your increasing resilience.
Relationship counselling is a form of psychological therapy used to treat relationship distress for both individuals and couples.
One of the most valuable things we have are our relationships with others, successful healthy relationships are essential for fulfilling stress free lives.
Good relationships are ones that nurture trust and commitment with respect for self and partner.
A good working relationship allows you to grow individually whilst also growing together, making the relationship stronger.All relationships go through difficult times, its how you handle times like these that can make the difference between staying together or splitting up.
Relationship counselling can be a source of help when facing problems such as ;
Affairs, divorce, separation, poor communication, lack of intimacy, conflict and feelings of frustration. It can also be used to make a good relationship even better through developing understanding and acceptance increasing satisfaction for both.
Counselling at Working Relationships gives you the chance to be heard and grow as a couple. As a Relate registered counsellor I will give you the time to discuss difficult issues and encourage you to look at your problems in a different way.
Working Relationships promotes better and more successful relationships for couples, individuals and organisations. "Through our professional counselling and psychotherapy services, companies and individuals find better, more productive ways of communicating and working".
